Polo Resources Limited ("Polo" or "the Company") - Corporate Update/Subscription for Ordinary Shares in MinFer Holdings Limited

TORONTO, Feb. 8 /CNW/ - Further to the announcements of 9 November 2010 and 17 November 2010, Polo Resources Limited (AIM and TSX: POL) announces that on 4 February 2011 it made a US$5m investment in MinFer Holdings Limited ("MinFer"). 

MinFer is a company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands which (together with its wholly-owned subsidiary Minfer Do Brazil Mineracao Ltda ("Minfer Subsidiary")) is engaged in the acquisition of, and exploration of, iron ore projects in Brazil. The MinFer Subsidiary is the holder of options to acquire a number of interests in iron ore projects in Brazil.

Pursuant to a Subscription Deed with Minfer dated 4 February 2011, Polo has subscribed for 51,731,199 new ordinary shares in the capital of Minfer representing 30 per cent of the enlarged issued share capital of MinFer (the "Subscriber Shares") at a price of US$0.0966534 per Subscriber Share (the "Subscription") in cash.  Pursuant to the Subscription Deed MinFer has also granted to Polo a warrant to subscribe for a total of 25,865,600 ordinary shares at a price per share of US$0.14498 capable of exercise for a period of two years from 4 February 2011 (the "Warrant").

For so long as Polo holds not less than 10% of the issued share capital from time to time of MinFer and for so long as Minfer is not listed on any stock exchange, Polo has the right to appoint a director to the board of MinFer, the first such appointee being Mr. Neil Herbert.  In addition, for so long as Polo is a shareholder of MinFer, any further allotments of MinFer shares shall first be offered to Polo on a pro rata basis. As part of the subscription, Polo has given notice that it will not exercise the option it was granted pursuant to the Option Deed announced on 9 November 2010 and 17 November 2010 and Minfer has agreed to refund any sums advanced by Polo pursuant to the Option Deed and to apply these sums to the subscription price payable by Polo.

Minfer intends to use the proceeds from the placement to establish a compliant mineral resource within the next 12 months.
